Key Recommendations from IJC’s 15th and 16th Biennial Reports
Science Priority Committee
2016/01/01

In the 15th and 16th Biennial reports, the Commission provided so many recommendations to the Parties that priorities were unclear and it was therefore difficult for the Parties to respond. During the same timeframe, the Parties were deeply engaged with renewal of the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement (GLWQA) that was signed in 2012. In the current interim between the last biennial report and the first triennial report (late 2016), we have reconsidered the recommendations from the 15th and 16th biennial reports in order to provide clearer priorities. Here we offer five of the earlier recommendations as key priorities. We have winnowed the earlier lists of recommendations in order to elicit more detailed responses from the Parties and ultimately to motivate key actions to improve the restoration and protection of the Great Lakes.

LEED is a voluntary, consensus-based national standard for developing high-performance, sustainable buildings. Members of the U.S. Green Building Council, representing every sector of the building industry, developed and continue to refine LEED.
